I say that, because Peltonen is weaker on the puck than Kreps is, and our success rate in the face-off circle has been subpar. Kreps, with his size and above-average face-off ability, gives us an opportunity to rectify both of those weaknesses. Plus, at the end of the day, Peltonen is merely a slower and smaller version of Dvorak (both serve the same function: penalty killing and providing support for other bottom-line players; neither of them contributes offensively).
